.artillery began to thunder. The Fed- tral commander sooh discovered the Bit latlon, bat he did not retreat without # fight. He gathered his haiidfnl of i teen, posted them to cover the town, •* and for an hour they held Jackson at bay. It was only when they were almost surrounded that they gave way and sought shelter in the passes of the mountain. Jackson paused only long enough to burn such Federal stores as he could not handily carry away and then swept down the Ltiray, bent to the left, and next day was before Winches ter. He attacked and recaptured the "town and drove every Federal to the Potomac and across it before be halted again. Thou the Federal government grasped the situation, and three different armies Were dispatched to close in 1 on Jackson and destroy him. The battles of Cross Keys and Pent Republic followed, and •Jackson fell back to join Lee and take |art in the battle which was to sweep •UcClellan from tbe peninsula. The Shenandoah and the Lurny were now in possession of the Federals, to be held *.till the close of tho war, but only with « Jeepornte fighting at intervals. ,: And now the gallant Custer, with his command, reached the Shenandoah with •the army of occupation—a young man, fresh from West Point, on whom the volunteer officers looked with distrust, but only waiting to. prove his worth. •Ouster belonged to Michigan. -His firs! •command was the First, Fifth, Sixth ! .and Seventh cavalry regiments of thai 'state, known as the Michigan cavalry brigade. While his fame was national, while his sad death years after the war in that terrible .massacre touched the •heart of every American, it is in Michi gan more than anywhere else that his memory is reverenced. It will live there until every soldier and soldier's son and grandson sleeps beneath the •od. The plains of northern Virginia were given up to fierce battles between infantry, tho valfeys to desperate charges -and bloody conflicts between the oppos Ing cavalry forces. Jackson had looked his last upon the Shenandoah. He was to become Lee's right arm and fight elsewhere until bit fall in the darkness on the bush linec '•highway at Chancellorsvillo. Another 'took his place, and the dead Ash by was .replaced by Stuart to lead the cavalry. ;- Let us go back to Royal Kenton. We left him just as Reube Parker had been r«nade prisoner by a Federal scoutin; party. Reube basely sought to betray him, bnt he failed of his purpose. Th Federal captain beat up the neighbor hood as thoroughly as possible, but Ken ~ ton slipped through his fingers and re turned to Jackson to make his report tt was bis information, seconded n< • doubt by that of others, which decidec Jackson's move to Front Royal. While tbe general seemed pleased at Kenton'i . -success, the latter could not fail to per • ceive that something was yet amiss. In bis own mind he felt sure that he was mistrusted, aim it was oaey to cor.cludi why. Not that ho bad failed in any om particular to do his duty, but that the • officers and men of his own company for reasons already given, were peekini his downfall. Wlion he had finisbec hid report, ho was ordered to his com pany, and again he found only one man to give him greeting. Steve Braytou • chuckled with satisfaction as he extend ed bia hand and aslcod for particulars The others only gave him looks of din trust. When Kenton was asked regard Ing Ren be Parker and bad made bis ex planations, Steve grew thoughtful. an< serious and finally replied: "It's a good joke on the captain, bnt I'm troubled as to bow it will end up I jest reckon thoy or' mean 'naff to charge yo' with killin Rewfco. Tbey can't prove it, but it will get tbe gin eral down on yo' and make things wuss, Dod blast tho fulee unyway! Wbjtoan'l tbey give yo' a fa'r show even if yb' be a Yank?" The crisis came next day. Renbe Parker bad been carried into tbe Fed- •eral camps as a prisoner, but owing to the confusion and excitement was nol strictly guarded and managed to make bis escape and arrive at Confederato headquarters Jess than 24 hours after Kenton. After a brief Interview with Captain Wyle the pair proceeded to Oeneral Jackson's headquarters, and when tbey left it Royal Kenton was •sent for, Gonernl Jackson was a plain, blunt spoken man. Even while planning tbo great campaign on which be was to enter within three or four days he bad determined to give tbls matter attention. Roubo Pnrkor bad charged ,»• "JJofirot 'ml" orowltf S{eve, Kei\ton with bringing about hja capture for reven|g«. Cuptoiu Wyle bad «|ated tb»t bo and all bia company distrqited bi« loyalty, The general naked tbe wont for « (statement of facts, and Kontou, gave it to hiia^ioiiceuUug no ooourtonco frtia tbo dato of uls eullftinent, Tbe .general U»t@ue4 attentively «n<] without Intwruptioii.

In flvo uijuutoa it \vua apparowt tlmt lioltitl Hod, aud bu wu» diBiuiaijUid, TUon Kenton wwi utikea to Btop out, and Stevo firayton, whom behnd several tiuwa referred to, was iialiurud lu. Ho told a «tiuigut atory, und it was greatly to. tbo it of Oaptuiu Wyle. When ton again returned to trie general 1 * pK»* ence, the latter kindly said! "It IB a matter I very much regret, And 1 do not gee bow 1 can mend It just yet. 1 Will, however, do what t think le best for all." That "beat" resulted lit both Kenton and brayton being detailed temporarily to tha quarter waster's department. When Jackson moved away for the Lu j^vllley, all the guards Were mounted, having Keen transferred to the cavalry, but the pair were left behind in disgrace. 80 they considered it, anc they were further humiliated by the jeers and flings from comrades ns they filed past. "Dod rot 'eo, but this 'ere langhin match hain't over yltt" growled Steve as tie shook his fist at the backs of his comrades.. "Yo' ar' doin the griunin jest now, bnt it'll be our turn bimeby Befo* this fuss is over with the southern confederacy will be powerful glad of every man it kin rake and scrape into the ranks!" Kenton had nothing to say. He was Bven Secretly glad that the machinations of his enemies hod resulted in nothing Worse. In his pocket at that very hour he had a letter from Marian detailing the family flight from Winchester, informing him of their destination and counseling him to do his duty as a sol flier and not be disturbed over the plots of his enemies. She knew that he waa being maligned and vilified for her take, BO shu wrote, but she hoped to bo worthy of all the sacrifices he might be compelled to make. "Say, Kenton," exclaimed Steve as be suddenly turned on him, "why don' yo' rip and cuss and tear an show yo'r feelin's?" "We have both been Wronged," slow ly replied Kenton, "bnt time will make all things right if we do our duty loy ally and faithfully." "I reckon so," said Steve as he turn ed away, "bnt yo' Yanks IB a durnec cur'ns lot o' critters jest the Banjpl" CHAPTER XVI. While Jackson was pressing on tc join Lee most of his cavalry was de tached and left in the valley. Tbe Sben andoah guards, which bad dropped tb title when transferred to the cavalry were a portion of Imboden's command The Federals poured into the Shenan doah and Luray from the north and re captured everything and pressed th Confederates slowly back to Staunton Neither side was strong enough to pos sess and hold the valley. The Confed erate occupation defended one of th roads to Richmond. The Federal occu pation defended one of the roads t< Washington. There were scooting an raiding and clashing of sabers, but noth ing like a general battle resulted. Boti commanders had been instructed tc avoid this aud watch the mighty move ments developing elsewhere. What ia a battle like—a battle in which 10,000 men fall in their track to die with tbe roar of the gnna stil sounding in their ears and as man; more lie there for hours cursing anc groaning and praying with the pain o their wounds? McClellan was on hot! Bides of the Chickabominy, with the spires of Richmond in view. His fron was. miles long and defended by rifl pits, earthworks, felled trees and. nat oral obstructions. More than 100,000 Federals faced Lee along this line. Behind them were camps and wagon traina and field hospitals and supplies cumber ing the ground for miles and miles. McClellan was about to attack. H was even writing bis order when Lee fell open bis wisg at Uvcli.uijgsville That waa a feint. The fight at Meadow Bridge, directly in front of his center was a piece of strategy. Tho assault upon bis wing at Cold Harbor waa meant to annihilate him. Tbe batth ground was made up of awamps, clearec fields, patches of forest, timber coverec bills and old flelds grown up to bushes and 'briers. McClollon bod two and three line's of earthworks hern, and hero bis guns were planted aa thickly as men could work them. Longstceet and Hil attacked here. They knew the strength of tha position; they bad counted the odds. There was no skirmishing, no waiting. On a front three miles louj tbe Confederates suddenly appeared and rushed forward to tbe attack. Had tbey numbered five tlmos us many they would bavn been beaten back. They were repulsed again and again by the fire which seemed to burn thorn off tho fade of tbe earth, but those who lived came back again more desperate than before, Only their leaders know why this terrible sacrifice was being offered np to tbe god of war, Leo bud planned with Jackson. Jackson bad left tbe valley by way of Brown's gap to fall upon McClellan's flank at Cold Harbor, Tbe sacrifice in front wus to givo Jackson time and to mask bis movement. And so Lougstroot au.1 Hill advanced again aud again to tho sucrillco until their dead and wounded outnumbered tbo living. The uttoruoon sun wus sinking lower uud lower. By and by it wus only aw hour high. Then the roar of battle along tbo front suddenly ceased. Had tbo remnants of regiments and brigades become panio stricken at tho a^ful waste of lifo and fled from tho field? Had they sullouly refused to obey orders to advance again? Qud Loo liven up all hope of success and withdrawn from tuat front? For fire uiin- ite* scarcely a musket was discharged, Tben from the heavy forest directly OH befioiik of the position Jackson up- wared, Tbe flank of an army is its w#«k spot. Even If aUuckud in the rear t can fucu about and fight with hope of success, but if tbe flunk gtveswuy disaster follows, Jackson's coming wus a surprise., H|s attack was as suddon- «a the stroke of a boll, it dunifouuded and dismayed tbe Federal flunk, but ouly for a few minutes. MoOloUun was not. fur away. He had futhquiod Loo's iluiia aud discovered his truo object, Tue HiuikguYo buck until it bud a front >f a uiilo long, and thou it halted uud tattled to save that grout uriuy. What rag to undone must boduuoright thoiu io-eufarceuieuts, wow ordered, up, guus advanced, And fof an hottf cb fighting as WM bad never witnessed before, Oh the Federal) flank were swamp and forest aud tangled thicket. Engineers bad said that the nature of the ground protected this flank. Waditog through swamps deep, with ooze, bursting through thickets which caught off their cup and left their jackets in rags, advancing their lines amid the. thick forests, Jackson's men rushed to the attack. Time and time again the lines were repulsed, but fresh troops poured out of the woods to take the places ol the dead and wounded, and the battle grew more vindictive aud murderous. There is a key to every battlefield. There is always a key within a key. Cold Harbor was tbe key ot this great field of slaughter. The exposed flank was the key within the key. Jackson could cotmt his dead by the thousand. His entire force was up, and lio had charged and stormed and battered 1:1 Vain. The coming of night does not always and a battle, bnt as darkness shuts down tbe combatants lose their desperation and become more wary of each other. Hunger, thirst and fatigue begin to tell As tbe fire cf artillery and musketry slackens the fflries of the wounded 'are heard, nnd those who have escaped unhurt '* sin to estimate the losses. If Jackson could not break that flank before night shut down, then his sacrifices had been in vain. Then tbe thousands of dead and v;ouiirlcd belonging to Longstreet and Hill 'bad simply been led to slaughter. An order was sent to General Hood, whose brigade of Texans had been held in reserve for an emergency. Hood placed himself at tbe heac of his 4,000 men and dashed forward They bad to traverse a swamp and tbei cross an open space on which the d~eac already lay touching each other. Tbe Texans had only begun_iheij forwart movement when 'every piece of artillery and ev'ery musket on that flank was turned upon theni. With yejjs of .de_fl ance the? rushed forward. The sSele tons of men struck down in that swamp were dug out years afterwejsl gs.buria parties sought for the dead of the 'war Wounded men fell into the pools o: black water or floundered about in thi ooze, bnt those unhurt nsed them for stepping stones. Nothing could check that rush. Grape and canister and bullet killed am wounded 3,000 men, but the other 2,000 swept forward, dashed over the earth works and were driven like a wedge into the Federal flank. It was the cli max. Beaten bnt not panio stricken the men in blue fell back step by step fighting over every foot of the ground and at length they rested on a new line. McClellan alone knew that hi was beaten. He alone realized what would result, , That great army, only a portion of which had been driven, mus fetreai to a new line and a new base of supplies. Jackson'a coming from, th 1 valley and placing himself on the flan! had imperiled the fate of the nation Like the Strategist be was, McClellan assumed pouch, concealed much. Whili be brought np fresh troops to hold the victorious enemy at bay he issued orders for retreat. For weeks and weeks stores had beei accumulating in rear of that gram army. There were thousands of bee cattle, train loads of' bacon, rice, Bait beans and other eatables. Thousands of spare tents bad come forward, thou sands of blankets, uniforms, aboea, mns keta and other supplies. Boxes of bard- tack were piled np 10 feet high for miles and milas. Barrels of flour, cov end with tarpaulins, shut out some of JooiMon't men ruthed to the attach* tbe camps from sight of tbe highways. Here and there In forest and field were great heaps of forage for tbo animals, and here and there great heaps at fixed ammunition for cannon or musket Tuer6 wus tbe value of milliouri of dol htra lying about, mid nearly all must be sacrificed. Withdrawal meant retreat. Retreat meant that Lee aud Jackson would assume tho aggressive and seek to utterly annihilate tbe Fed era! iirmy. Tho \xprkof destruction began almost boforo tbe cheers of Hood's Tuxans bad lied awuy. Whole regiment* were detailed for the work. Tho cattle could be drivel away. A part of the most valuable stoics could be hatiled off. It is a rule of war to leave nothing behind iu retreat to benefit your enemy. Ho is often loft tlw dead and wounded to em- jarrass him, Tbe soldier* were ordered o destroy, aud they seemingly took de- Ight iu obeying. Tbo heaps of floor, meat aud clothing were given up to (be lamoa, and as tbe heavens were lighted >y tbo iniduigbt fires pooplo on tbo bouse roofs in Richmond believed tbo peon forests to be fiercely blaviug. lover bad a general wore to sacrifice tlmt ho might bo stripped for fight; never was tbo baud of destruction uioro utblessly applted. A nigbt was not ufflulout. All next day while those in battle lino bold tbe enemy at bay thou- ands of uwu were burning and destroy- ug. When tbe Confederate* marched vor tbo ground, they were appalled at bo sacrifices uiudo. When tbo last beap f forage bad boon given up to tho flaiuea, MojUluUuu was ro«dy, His Hues wore ubgudQiied, and bis urtuy wus In otrait, but there was no panic.

Mife- by mil* they retreated, pausing now and then tot a fierce grapple in which tBey could justly claim a Victory, and at last the James was reached, and the army had been saved. What of the dead and Wounded?: Nothing. They figure in the reports o£ battles only as figures, CHAPTER XVIL Not one soldier in a hundred more than catches n glimpse of a battlefield. He seldom sees What takes place outside of his own regiment. Wtten two great armies grapple, they must have room. The front may be three, Jour, five or six miles long. The lines* of battle mm across open fields, through the woods,, over hills, across highways, through orchards. As 1 soon as the firing begin* tbe smoke shuts in the vision to the right and left. Troops rany stand! or He down, have tho cover > t' a breastwork «r none at all. They may charge or be charged, gain ground or be driven back to a new line. However the battle goes, the soldier sees only what takes place in his immediate front. And how the opening of a battle changes tbe nature of a man! While he is waiting for it to begin every nerve is strung to its utmost. -• He may be a brave man, but in that hour of waiting he denies it to himself. He trembles. He doubts himself. He turns pale, and his knees grow weak. He would run away but for his pride. It is pride and not courage that holds him in his place. He may be a man who has never uttered an oath in the hearing of bis comrades— a man of Christian principles. A minute after tbe firing begins all the wickedness born in his soul begins to betray itself. He shouts and rave's and curses. His facial expression is so changed that his own brother could not identify him. For the time being he is a madman—a devil He cries: "Kill! Kill! KiU!" even though \p hjg excitement he fires among" thetree {ops or altlie clouds. This is the excitement which numbs all feeling in some men when wounded, and they fight on .until they happen to catch Bight of their own blood" and then sink helplessly .down. It is a sort of nightmare in which no man can beheld responsible for his words, and in which no one notes the flight of tinie^ To some an hour seems a day. Toothers the sun passes from the noonday mark to the edge of the horizon so swiftly that they are amazed. For half a day Lee's whole army hac hurled itself against the Federal lines Every foot of ground on that long from had drunk blood. The line was broken only at one place, bnt that was fatal There the fight continued to rage unti long after nightfall, but at last it giad nally died away, and a solemn hush fell upon the bloody field. One may con quer and yet be so near vanquished thai he has no strength for another blow. So it was with Jackson. He bad broken the Federal line, but he could not fol low up his advantage. Bven if nigh 1 had not come he must reorganize his shattered commands, replenish his ammunition aud permit the wornout men food and sleep. A battle does not cease at once. It is an hour or more in dying away. There ia a sputtering and growling here anc there, and men give np their work o death grudgingly. At last a hush cornea. It is absolute to.tho men who have been deafened by the roar for hours anc hours. It is a blessed relief, bnt they look at each other in alarm. The verj stillness frightens them. They hav" seen dead and wounded men before them, to the light or left, in rear, for hours, bnt have scarcely given them a thought. Now when the bush coinei the frenzy gradually goes away, anc they stand appalled at the slaughter. The hush does not last long. It is broken by tbe cries of tbe wounded—by mei who have suffered pain and thirst anc fear for long hours. There is nothing known to living man which can be coin* pared to these cries rising fiom a flek of slaughter as night cornea down. Men who have suffered and made no outcry while daylight lasted now seem to be •oized with a fear of tbe darkness. Men who seemed to have been struck o>ac are revived by the falling dew to plead for life, Borne, call out ip quavering voices, like children when in tbe darkness. Some curse j some pray i some revile. Here and there one, realizing that be is wounded unto death aud that help will come too late, inaiutains silence. Witb an effort which starts tho red blood afresh, be carries bis band io tbe pocket iu which lies a photograph of sweetheart or a lost letter from the wife at homo, and tbe burial party finds hfs dead fingers clutching tho relic and bis glazed eyes fastened upon it—his last glimpse of things mortal. Tho full horror of a battlefield ia realized only at night. While darkness a.hnt? put a thousand horrible sigMs, it yet adds to tho horrors. Here and there parties searching for some officer, dead or wounded, move about with luutern or torch to guide tbom, Tbey step over tho doad. They troad upon hands and arms outstretched. Thoy slip and stag- jOr 011 the spots of eurtli wot with blood. The wouudod hoar aud see thorn moving about, and thoy cull out with renewed strength for scccor. A wounded borao who hua beau lying down In a pool of jlood sees the light approaching, and thuru is something human in his whim- perings. He pleads and coaxoi. With i grout effort bo gains his foot and bob- bios along and uttors his ploadlnga and reproaches. On this battlofioia of Cold Harbor are lino or tee thousand dead men, tuu or wulvo thousand wouudod. Tho living aud unhurt are exhausted with the day's itrugglo, and the wounded must lie hrough the night. There are no saurob- ug parties abroad, no dotuihj to give uccor. f {oui freest <md. tliiokut «jid lokl tliu cries, of tho stricken ooutinuo lour uftor bjpur, but thoy cry In Vain, In lit* swiiiuu ovui which Hogd churgod vuuiidod (uon lup tho water thick with mid uiul slliuo.

Here, where the inigades of Hill moved ovet the open ground to eharge the teoops of Seymour and Reynolds, the dead lie thicker than they trill, in the streets at Fredricksburg or on. tbe slopes at Gettysburg. Tttete ore no wounded—at Isast fco Voices crjtout to ustbiough the darkness. Here the Federals had 80 pieces of artillery posted to command the approach, and as the Confederates advanced the slaughter was something terrible. - Sixteen hundred and eighty dead men lie here in this open spot-of five acres. Thay were struck down by round shot, by bursting shell and by grape and canister. There are bodies without heada, bodies without arms,, bodies whieh are but fragments. When tho burial party reaches this spot tomorrow, they will name it "The Butcher Pen," and that name will cling to it forevermore. Napoleon would have said that no troops in the world could have been advanced under that awful fire, bnt from 4 o'clock to sundown tbe Confederates charged again and again, leaving their dead nearer earthwork and breastwork each time. Here, where Potter massed 80 guns at Alexander's Bridge- in the vain hope of saving the center, the dead cannot be gathered and buried for days. They are not corpses, but fragments of corpses. Arms.and legs will be found amid the branches of trees,and hands and feet and pieces of flesh and bloody bcnes must be raked up as if it were a hayfield. Here, where General Oooke with his cavalry charged one of Longstreefs divisions and was broken and shattered and routed within five minutes, 600 horses cover two acres of ground. Among them are 800 dead and wounded troopers. It was a gallant charge, but it was made in vain, Even by noonday no man can passovejr that field without staining his boots with blood. If corn growsinere in after years when iqen shall be at peace, it will grow rank and tall, and the rustle of the stalks in the' summer wind will sound like a chant in memory of the dead. It is midnight. McClellan is moving quietly to the rear, the Confederates along his front watching, waiting, Bleeping. The wpiinded have almost ceased to call out. The faces of the dead jwy^ foenjutr}ge whiter and more ghastly by ihe~b*ath of dew.

Every army has its human hyenas. They may have fought bravely during the bnttle, bnt as night falls and men cease their work of killing the ghoulish instinct cannot be resisted. Tbey kneel beside the dead and search each pocket. Their knees feel the earth wet with blood, bnt they do not shrink. Their hands touch gaping wounds and are smeared with blood, but there is no disgust. Whatever plunder they secure is blood stained, bnt on tbe morrow they will wash away the stains.
